Former Ole Miss and NFL offensive lineman Michael Oher accused the Tuohy family of defrauding him for their own financial gain. The Tuohy family has responded.

According to a recent update on the case, according to TMZ, Michael Oher allegedly requested $15 million from Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy before submitting a petition to end the family’s conservatorship over him.

Michael Oher, a former NFL offensive lineman who became well-known as a result of the book and movie “The Blind Side,” submitted a petition on Monday in a Tennessee court. The Tuohy family, according to Oher’s petition, deceived him into becoming their conservator and falsely claimed to have adopted him. He asserts that after his story was published as a book and made into a movie over ten years ago, the family exploited this set-up to cash in on the success of his tale.

Marty Singer, the legal representative for the Tuohy family, has disputed Oher’s assertions. Oher allegedly threatened the family in the past and demanded a sum of money in the eight-figure range, according to Singer. If the family didn’t comply, Oher allegedly threatened to leak false information about them to the media, according to Singer.

Singer, who vehemently denied Oher’s allegations, said that the Tuohy family did not trick him into consenting to enter the conservatorship when he turned 18 years old.

Contrary to the allegations, Singer stated in his statement that Oher’s needs were actually met by the conservatorship, which included helping him with the application process for university, getting health insurance, and getting a driver’s license. Singer emphasized that the Tuohys would have no issues and would fully support Oher’s decision to terminate the conservatorship at any time.

After the publication of The Blind Side, Michael Oher played in the NFL for nine seasons, earning a total of $34.5 million. Additionally, Singer refuted Oher’s assertion that the Tuohy family used the conservatorship to withhold millions of dollars in movie revenue.
